Legacy Network for Pre-Shared Key (Passwords) - Transitioning & Disabling by End of 2016-2017 School Year

To ensure the security of our networks, the Information Technology Division is disabling “legacy"networks that have a pre-shared key (password).

This would impact any users that connect to a network named after their site’s location code such as “1234”, “1234n”, or “1234Admin” or any other naming variation.

All users that currently connect to these networks on devices such as tablets, printers, projectors, etc. using a pre-shared key/password, will now need to sign-in to connect to the LAUSD wireless network via their LAUSD Single Sign-On credentials. This will help ensure that only LAUSD employees, students and authorized users are connected to the LAUSD wireless network. As a reminder, to provide wireless access to guests that may visit your school, you can now provide Wireless Guest Access so even visitors can connect to the LAUSD wireless network when it is needed.

For computer labs and shared devices, such as testing devices, IT Customer Services (ITCS) will be visiting schools to assist during their scheduled transition date. In addition, ITCS will be onsite during the transition to assist any users who may experience any issues.

While the transition is underway, users will be presented with a pop-up that gives you instructions on how to migrate to the “LAUSD” wireless network to sign-in with your LAUSD Single Sign-On credentials.

ITD is conducting a soft-launch over the next two weeks. During the third week of February, more schools will be cut-over – with the majority of schools transitioned by the end of the 2016-2017 school year.

School sites with the majority of users utilizing these legacy networks will be transitioned over the summer into the first few weeks of 2017-2018 school year.

If you have any questions, please contact the ITD Help Desk at 213-241-5200.

Thank you for your cooperations as we ensure the security of our LAUSD networks.
